What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

The Air Force Museum Foundation, Inc.

The Air Force Museum Foundation, Inc was chartered in 1960 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with the purpose of assisting the United States Air Force Museum (now the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force) in its efforts to engage and educate the public on the important role of the USAF in our nation's defense.

We serve as a philanthropic corporation that assists in the development and expansion of the facilities of the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force. In addition, the Foundation provides funds each year to the Museum for special projects and underwrites several programs involving a wide range of activities geared toward education, volunteer support, special events, and promotional efforts. The National Museum of the United States Air ForceTM is a USAF facility that is funded by the Air Force for normal operations and maintenance costs.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Air Force Museum Foundation seeks to honor every Airman's story with a permanent home to inspire future generations by raising funds and awareness to support the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force.

Our strategy is twofold. First, we raise funds to assist where federal funds are not available for important activities like construction and maintenance, educational programming, special events and more. Second, we help generate awareness and attendance of the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force.

Raising of funds is accomplished by the operation of the Air Force Museum Store, Air Force Museum Attractions, Air Force Museum Cafés and through fundraising and membership programs. Monies generated by the operation of these business units go directly to the Museum. Awareness and attendance are achieved through advertising and media relations that highlight both the Foundation and the Museum, along with Foundation-led events that generate additional traffic coming to the Museum

In the past few years, the Foundation fully funded the Museum’s expansion by constructing the Fourth Building that highlights Space, Research & Development, Presidential, and Global Reach aircraft. We also funded the restoration of the iconic Memphis Belle, Museum wayfinding program, the Augmented Reality D-Day exhibit, and annual support for more than 600 volunteers.

In the future, we are planning to provide climate-controlled exhibit space, supporting new, updated exhibits that better represent all men and women of the Air Force, increased interactive experiences and exhibits, and creating once-in-a-lifetime events and special experiences to enable the Museum to meet its mission.
